View Full Version : Dalits the oppressed class of india

06-15-2018, 10:09 AM
Dalit, meaning "broken/scattered" in Sanskrit and Hindi, is a term mostly used for the castes in India that have been subjected to untouchability. Dalits were excluded from the four-fold varna system of Hinduism and were seen as forming a fifth varna, also known by the name of Panchama.

India's destructive caste system hurts women more than anyone else

These violations are part of a growing problem in India, where caste and gender-based inequality are rampant. The discrimination of Dalit women is two-fold – because they are born both Dalit and a woman. Rape has long been used as a tool to maintain power and discrimination and this has been clear as violence against Dalit women has been on the rise in recent years. Between 2007 to 2017, crimes against Dalits increased by 66 percent, while rape against Dalit women doubled, National Crime Bureau statistics show. Six Dalit women are raped every day.

“Crimes against Dalits are often not properly registered or investigated, conviction rates are low, and there is a large backlog of cases. Police are also known to collude with perpetrators from dominant castes in covering up crimes by not registering or investigating offences against Dalits,” a report by Amnesty International said.

The women had both been stripped naked, beaten and slapped, and then brutally gang-raped until they lost consciousness.

“First they slapped me a lot, and then they dragged me. And when I tried to run, I was also pregnant at that time with a baby girl, and then they kicked me in my chest, near my heart,” Rukanksha* told TRT World.

“Even till now it hurts a lot in my heart.”

Caste dynamics behind sexual violence in India

Analysts point out that rape is often used as a weapon when there is a situation of caste or class conflict. This was evident in February 2016 when agitation by the Jat community, a relatively well-off upper caste agricultural community demanding reservations, or quotas of government jobs, disrupted life in the northern state of Haryana.

During the violent riots, it came to light that attackers dragged out nine women, all Dalits, from their houses and subjected them to gang rape.

"Rape is about power. Therefore, rape of Dalit women by upper-caste men is an exercise of power. It is also how upper-caste men can imply that Dalit men were not able to 'protect' women. Hence, rape is also a contest among men," sociologist Sanjay Srivastava told DW.

"I wish I wasn't born as a Dalit woman. We are the easiest targets for any sexual or physical abuse in our society."

"We are not allowed to enter the houses of upper caste people. We are untouchables. When they give us water to drink, they pour it on our palms to avoid any direct contact."


"Upper caste men give us names which are both abusive and derogatory. I wish I could change this practice. We do not want to work under the upper caste people and compromise our dignity. But we are poor. What other options do we have?"


"Have you heard upper caste girls getting raped in our community? We are poor and powerless. That's why upper caste men rape our girls. They can get away with anything because they have money and power."


"Upper caste men make fun of us. They think our lives don't matter because we are daughters of poor families. They always look at us with lustful eyes."

"I am a TB (Tuberculosis) patient and because I am Dalit, the doctor will not even come close to me. But when an upper caste patient comes to the clinic, the doctor goes close to the patient and sees them properly without any hesitation."


"Our blood and body are the same, but it is the society that divides and discriminates us. Upper caste men do anything they want because they know we can't fight back."


"We cannot send our daughters unaccompanied to the fields, to fetch water or even to school. Men from the upper caste stare at our daughters with lustful eyes."

The second one is jewish Armenoid.

Indian Armenoids look more like Armenians.

More like the Armenoids of the Levant than to Armenians since Armenians have a distinctive Caucasian look to a degree.

dalit man beaten to death


Fuck that, those bastards should be hunted down and eliminated by the authorities. In my opinion. This is un-Hindu like behavior and I'm certain Hindu nationalists are against this treatment of Dalits.
